MUSC to host The Greenest Day: An Earth and Arbor Day celebration

April 18, 2023

MUSC’s The Greenest Day: An Earth and Arbor Day celebration 2023 will be held on Thursday, April 20, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the MUSC Colbert Education Center and Library Portico. The Greenest Day will feature food vendors serving up the flavors of the Lowcountry along with environmentally minded businesses, organizations, artists, farmers and more.

To emphasize the importance of sourcing our food locally, the culinary creations of Bangin Vegan Eats, Roti Rolls, James Brown Boiled Peanuts, King of Pops, The Other Cookie and Charcuterie Happy Board will be available for purchase.  Some of their produce and products will be sourced locally (defined as within 100 miles). The festivities will also feature live music and no purchase door-prize tickets for all attendees when they visit with a vendor or organization.  We have 40 Door Prizes including A Dynabook laptop from The Office People, 2 guitars from Kathy McKay, organic fertilizer from Bartlett Tree Experts, a CSA box from Gruber Farms and many more.  The Greenest Day is an event for all ages and is free to attend.   .

MUSC has hosted an Earth Day event every year in April for over a decade – even online during Covid. Over the years, the event has grown from a small affair to a large festival that features many vendors and garners community interest. The Greenest Day: An Earth and Arbor Day celebration is one of the many ways that MUSC sends a clear signal about its commitment to environmental stewardship and recognition of the inextricable link between the health of the environment and human health.

“MUSC is proud to host this event with our community businesses, nonprofits and artists who are working every day to help Lowcountry residents to maintain a high quality of life. We are only as healthy as our community and our environment,” said MUSC Sustainability and Energy manager, Christine von Kolnitz.
